harvesting maris piper potatoes
My 2 toddlers and i enjoyed harvesting our maris piper potatoes yesterday they were very helpful in picking them up and putting them gently out to dry for me. I harvested them by hand rather than use a fork and put it through them! I have raised beds so this makes it easier! However most of them have some sort of disease possibly scab i have yet to sort them out today but i don’t think many of them will be going into storage over the winter. I read somewhere you could chop them up and put them in the freezer so that is what i will have to do if none have survived the wireworm, scab and the slugs! A bit gutted as this is my first ever year growing fruit and veg.
